I tried the demo trial version and it worked with my E18 as well as my Bifrost Uber USB. I prefer using something compatible with the USB Audio spec so that I can play music from any app like Neutron MP or streaming apps like Spotify or my Google All Access subscription. USBAPP cannot do that. So I use either my laptop, GS3 phone or iPod Touch 5G to drive my DACs.

So, Galaxy S3 might be able to run it,which model you having? Btw,using the E18 as DAC. Does it use the e18 as an amp and DAC at the same time?

I have a USA Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3. I can use the E18 as a DAC/Amp or USB to coax SPDIF for the GS3 phone. I can also connect my iPod Touch 5G with a Lightning CCK cable to the E18. The E18 draws no power so a powered USB Hub is not required for either. My Bifrost Uber USB DAC draws too much power so a powered USB Hub or Y cable with battery (Juice Pack) is required when using either the GS3 or Touch.

The FiiO E18 is reportedly compatible with the native USB audio of Android L (Developer Preview) running on Google Nexus 5.

It should also work with an Android L-powered Google Nexus 7 2013.

 

How to install Android L:

I wouldn't use a Beta version of an OS on my daily driver.

This has probably been asked but I'm on mobile and not able to search atm but does this have enough juice to power the hd800? I know there are better option but was wondering.

It has enough juice to fire up the HD600's, 112 dB (at 1 kHz, 1 Vrms). The HD800's are less efficient, 102 dB SPL (1kHz, 1 Vrms ). 

When measuring by Voltage, 6 dB means double. So at 108 dB the HD800 requires 2V RMS. The E18 can deliver 8Vp-p which is about 2.8 V RMS. That might not be enough headroom to prevent distortion on peaks for the HD800, unless you listen at softer volume levels.

And here I was expecting a simple yes or no answer. Thanks! :-)

As simple as 0311 training at Camp Geiger/Lejune.

I hear voices in my head, urging me to get another set of headphones or IEMs.:blink: I must resist I must resist I must resist I can't resist.
